Search for the most viable tutor for your ESOL lessons based in Georgetown!

Known as one of Malaysia’s heritage and most multicultural cities, Georgetown is the colourful capital of the Malaysian island of Penang. 

Beyond the tall skyscrapers and modern lifestyle, Georgetown still retains the culture and heritage of the old city which makes it an ever-charming place to visit and live in. The British colonial buildings in this city too, still stand strong.

Moreover, it is also known as Malaysia’s food haven due to its wide variety of local food that locals and foreigners can choose from, with nasi kandar being the staple food.

Named after King George III during the colonisation era, we can only imagine the heavy Western cultural influence that has been imparted on this beautiful city. However, that does not mean that the residents of Georgetown go about their day speaking in English.

As a matter of fact, most Georgetown residents still choose to converse in their mother tongue — Bahasa Melayu.

One of the reasons most do not prefer to speak in English may be due to lack of proficiency, which comes with the daunting thought of the cost of English (ESOL) lessons, should they need it.


How much does an ESOL course cost?

According to Findcourse.com, Malaysia has the lowest prices of all countries, starting from RM 2,250 to RM 3,100 per week including the course and accommodation costs.

However, you do not need to pay a huge sum of money to study English. The best thing about language is you can learn independently with little to no costs at all, depending on your studying methods.

As long as you are learning English as a non-native speaker, you are deemed an ESOL student! It really is that easy.

Nonetheless, if you are looking to get certified as an ESOL student, there are a number of academies and institutions to help you get started! Be mindful that it may be quite pricey as language — as much as it is hard to learn it, it is just as hard to teach!

Once enrolled into an ESOL course, you may be wondering how long it will be until you will receive your certification as an ESOL student.


How long does it take to become ESOL certified?

Each academy providing ESOL courses will have different time frames on how long a student will have to go through the course before receiving a certification on the enrolled subject.

Commonly, it takes about one to three months to complete a self-paced ESOL course online. This also depends on the number of hours the student takes per day to study the lessons. The more topics the student revises in a day, the faster they are able to finish the course.

However, it will undoubtedly take some time to review each topic as there are far too many branches and subtopics, especially in grammar, that need to be thoroughly studied for the student to grasp the lesson.

Some of the key areas needed to be studied by any ESOL student includes:

  • Grammar (grammar rules)
  • Vocabulary (distinguishing adverb, idiom, preposition, noun etc...)
  • Adjectives
  • Verbs (Tenses, infinitive, irregular verbs, simple past, simple present, present simple, and so on)
  • Spelling
  • English Writing skills (Basic English or Conversational English vs Business English)
  • English reading skills
  • English listening skills (listening comprehension, understanding dialect)
  • English speaking skills (English conversational speech)
  • English pronunciation


How to pass the ESOL test?

The list inclusive of the English language key areas may seem daunting to the studying individual, but it really is not as intimidating as it looks.

Regardless, a student of ESOL will need to sit for a test for them to be able to receive a certificate of qualification. In Malaysia, a certificate that can be deemed as equivalent to an ESOL certificate might be the Malaysian University English Test (MUET).

No matter, students of ESOL will still need to prepare for the qualifying test.

The most important thing is to brush up on grammar as ESOL tests prioritise practical use rather than conversational English. So, it is wise for the learner to do some grammatical practices so they can fully comprehend the grammatical rules.

Additionally, English proficiency tests are quite different from the usual English tests we sit for in schools. They are far more specific on technicalities. So, it would be best to get your hands on test-specific books where the authors will share the tips and answer schemes for sitting for your ESOL test.

A constantly overlooked tip is memorising power words. There is always an added advantage to using more powerful words, especially in speaking tests. For instance, instead of saying “very intimidating”, test sitters can opt to use “daunting” or rather than “very sad”, the phrase can be replaced with “sorrowful”.


What are the ESOL skills?

Generally, in English, there are a number of skills that an ESOL student should be proficient in. These skills include: listening, reading, writing, speaking among other skills such as comprehension, pronunciation, grammar and spelling.

Since there are quite a number of skills that need to be learned, this can seem a bit hard for beginner students, more so when English is learnt indepently.

While it is true ESOL students can learn pronunciation and vocabulary through many mediums, grammar can be a bit tricky to comprehend individually hence, it is always best to hire a tutor to aid you in your ESOL lessons.
